Diwali Gift Guide

Out of the many hundreds celebrated, Diwali is probably my favourite festival. I love the lights, a few fireworks don't hurt and I absolutely adore the festive spirit everyone is submerged in. Eating delicacies, planning outfits and buying gifts for my friends & family get me uber excited! In an attempt to finish all my pending assignments before hand, this year the buying gifts part got super delayed. But thank god for online shopping, I logged on to Indiacircus.com and pretty much got everything I needed! I don't know about you guys but I have all my dear ones categorized when it comes to deciding on the themes for their gifts. So here's a low down on what I would get for the following:-

1)The Home Freak
We all know a person who would rightly fall into this category. It could be your mom, a friend who just moved into a new place or just anyone who loves putting in that extra effort to make their spaces look exemplary. Be it cushion covers, candles, mugs, rugs or even crockery, they would appreciate every bit of it. For me cushion covers are the safest option because they very subtly yet effectively change the look of the place and by experience, are the most appreciated too!

2) The Writer
You know that friend who loves to doodle or who needs to pen down every single detail of his/her life into a diary? Or is just intrigued by fancy stationery and has an obsession to collect it like we collect shoes? This is precisely for them! IndiaCircus has some super cool prints and various sizes in the notebooks and diaries which makes it interesting to choose a design that matches the receiver's personality. I ended up picking two for a friend and sneaked in one for myself. This could even be a perfect gift for a sibling or younger cousin who is still studying!

3) The Fashion Addict
I personally love make up & cosmetic bags. Not only do they come in handy while travelling and look pretty on your dresser but I even carry a small one with my essentials in my everyday bag. The smaller utility pouches can even be used as a tiny clutch for a quick run to finish errands! If this doesn't fancy you, you could even look at some cool wallets, spectacle cases, jewellery or some fun apparel! I know I would love any of these and would cherish them forever.

4)The Tech Lover
We all have that one friend we go to for any technological help or the one who knows it all about the latest apps to download and if they accidentally get hold of your phone, they are sure to point out 10 things you're doing wrong! These fun Ipad/tablet and phone cases would be the perfect indulgence for them. I personally love this rickshaw print phone cover and this owl print ipad cover! Trust me, you won't regret this!

5) The Gentleman
When it comes to the men in our lives, there are not many things that come to my mind as gifts. It's the usual wallets, watches, ties or perfumes! But at Indiacircus you could get these mundane items with a touch of quirky prints! Let me divide this for you, for my dad I would probably go for something less experimental like these cufflinks, for my brother I'd probably pick a wrist watch and a fun tie or bowtie for my best guy friends who wouldn't mind stepping a little out of the box!

I hope this gave you a few ideas for your last minute Diwali shopping! If you do end up ordering some gifts from Indiacircus don't forget to share pictures on Instagram and a have a joyous festive week.

Pants- Marquee by Veromoda, Cropped top- Veromoda, Necklace & Bag- Veromoda, Shoes- River Island

Veromoda recently launched it's brand new limited edition collection called Marquee. This collection is designed by Karan Johar adding another feather to his cap. The collection is going to be released in parts for the next couple of months. It's mix of ethereal feminine pieces, edgy details as well as some chic active wear. It's very different from what you would normally find at the high street stores here.

This month's collection is divided into three main themes. The first one is dreamy & feminine matched with vintage shapes that render an ethereal elegance to this collection which is dominated by ivories. Details in gold thread, timeless pearls & beads create a truly regal, timeless and classic fashion experience that disregards all temporary fashion fads & seasonal trends. The second one is a delectable mishmash of Bohemian and futuristic aesthetics. Indulging in the cult of print range, this also includes coordinated separates in the form of short dress suits, pants and tops! The last one takes an electric twist for the party circuit. With the party season at it's all time high, this collection lets shimmer and shine take center stage. Interesting patterns, contemporary silhouttes and jackets in gold, blue, silver, black are the highlights of this one!

For this look, I chose these gorgeous Palazzo pants that fit like a dream. It instantly adds that retro vibe and is perfect for a day time occasion. The self print adds more definition to the ivory base and makes it stand out even more. The fabric has the ideal weight to it which makes it fall perfectly. I paired it with this perforated cropped top in a bright tangerine which plays well with the neutral pants. You could even pair these pants with a sleek white blazer for that coveted coordinated suit look. A statement pearl necklace and a bag in a similar hue complete the look. What do you think of this look? Head over to a Veromoda store to try these pants on and check out the other pieces from this collection and don't forget to tell me what you think!

Slowly yet gradually I am turning into an avid online shopper. If you closely follow me on my social media platforms you are probably aware of the various mini hauls that take place! Initially I was so skeptical about it because I preferred going to the store, to try and feel the fabrics or strut in the shoes before I decide to swipe my card. But as life got super hectic and almost everything was easily available with just a few clicks it's a lot more easier to shop online. Now what's better than being able to shop while you're at work or late at night? A free service that lets you save money while you splurge! If you're an ardent online shopper like me, you might want be attentive for the next few minutes.

Bonusbay.in is a website that lets you enjoy cash back while you're engaging in some online retail therapy. In fact it actually collects your cash backs and deposits it back to your bank account! They are associated with some of the best online shopping destinations like Jabong.com, Amazon.in, Koovs.com and so many more! Can it get any better than this? Yes, it's free to register and all you have to do is follow these simple steps to get started on your bonuses.

The bonuses will be paid to you once Bonusbay receives it's commission from the participating store. The time period is mentioned on the landing page of each store which help you calculate a timeline.

It's really that simple. The various stores offer different percentage of bonuses which are mentioned on the website. For example if you shop from Jabong.com you can earn 4% bonus on your total purchases whereas you can earn 5.50% bonus when you shop from Amazon.in! It may not seem like a lot but over a period it will accumulate to an amount that you will appreciate. It almost gives you that feeling when you find money in your old pair of jeans!
